Do you have brand preferences?

Chiyawa
 Share

So, I was just wondering, do you all have any brand preference for a particular type of product? What I mean is that if there are choices to choose, you would likely to choose a brand over other brands?

 

For me, my prefer monitor brand would be LG, even though AOC and ViewSonic offers something similar with a cheaper price (Well, in PC PartPicker anyway). I like LG monitors because I found their product is good with premium looks.

 

So, what are yours, and for what reason? Feel free to comments.

 

Regards,

G.Skill for ram

Samsung for ssd

Western Digital for hdd

Corsair or Noctua for cooling

Logitech for peripherals

Samsung or LG for displays

 

I'm pretty biased mostly because when something works, I just like to stick to it - even if it means paying a bit more for it.

 

EDIT:

Asus for motherboards

Seasonic for psu's

Anker for cables and chargers

Yeah, I think I need to switch my prefer brand from Kingston to GSkill when comes to RAM. Kingston did a good job on their ValueRAM last time, but now, even their ValueRAM is not that appealing with the price they set for the market.

 

Nice selection brands you have there.

Interesting, my answer would be the same for every single one other than corsair for coolers. To add to it, I have had a very good experience with Anker products, particularly their cables and chargers. With that being said, you shouldn't buy something based on just the fact that it is made by a certain company, every company is going to make good products and bad products, you should look at reviews of whatever you are looking at.

Hm. Mixed feelings about brands. One, I judge mainstream names or brands with hyped-up fanbois with a very suspicious eye. Two, there's only a limited number of tech products I have hands-on experience with, so I don't feel totally confident with sweeping statements like, "Yes, so-and-so's line up of products in this category is definitely trustworthy." Just my two cents. 🤷‍♂️

Brand preference, fanboyism, whatever you call it. I like to think that I'm relatively neutral :3

Oh ho ho. LTTstore.com. Well, I would like to get some stuff, but I felt their price is a bit on the premium side.

Indeed. That's why rather than looking at company's claim, I usually look around for other people's thought. However, sometimes, what other people thought 'ideal' for them might not reflect to yours, so it's really depends on you.

Hmm... Well, I'm not into fanboyism category, to say. I mean, I like LG displays, but I still think ViewSonic is pretty competitive. My office uses ViewSonic monitor and it looks good. I prefer LG because it looks premium, at least for me.

I used to think EVGA were the best for GPU's since people always recommended them but have not been happy with them. They perform but the noise was never acceptable imo.

I do have one brand loyalty from now on though... Nokia. I have a 3.1 that costed 200 NZD. Build quality is great for the price, the sides are metal, on a $200 phone! The battery lasts like 2.5 days. It feels premium. My next phone will definitley be a Nokia.

Yeah. Nokia was my favourite, and I really like my Nokia Lumia 525. Still going strong for a 6 years old phone. Too ad I can't find the back cover replacement, because my button disintegrated. Otherwise, that phone is so good.

I shouldn't, but I do. This is going to get me roasted, but:

I still prefer Intel processors to AMD, but that's partially because I don't consider immediate value in my build planning (I build my daily drivers to last in the 7-10 year range without any upgrades and assuming no component failures), and partially because I just like Intel.

Wow, Sapphire GPU are nice. I like the Red Devil range, top of the line, but very pricey.

 

Errata: Red Devil series are actually from Power Colour. Sapphire is Pulse and Nitro. I mixed up both of the manufacturer. But anyway, the Sapphire Nitro has some good looking GPU.

Nowadays, Lenovo has started to solder RAM, and the T-series seems to have been moved to a different segment with the worse L-series replacing it.

Thinkpad seems to go down the drain when they shift from IBM to Lenovo. Still, I think their X series is something to be reckoned with.

I thought Intel CPU is 'cooler' than AMD, as they are not hot at all. Strange to hear someone say they are harder to cool.

Yes, but it's mostly just because I've found stuff that worked and stuck with it.

 

-Motherboards:

  1. ASRock
  2. MSI
  3. Gigabyte

-RAM:

  1. Corsair
  2. G.Skill

-Video cards:

  1. EVGA (as I have one in nearly every computer I've built and use)
  2. MSI

-SSD storage:

  1. ADATA
  2. Crucial
  3. SanDisk

As for platter hard drives? Seagate and only Seagate. WD is hot garbage as I see them, I've had a large number fail over the years in my systems and others. The last good WD platter drive I had was a 10GB IDE unit back when they had a long warranty on them (lifetime or 10 year maybe?), now it's 2 years or so and that's all anyone should expect to get out of one. Most other brands I've had that sucked are either not produced anymore or they've been absorbed by someone else.

 

PSU's are an interesting thing. Nearly everything I own has a low-tier EVGA or a second-hand Delta OEM unit in it. I've only spent actual money on one EVGA G3 PSU and everyone thinks they're garbage.

 

Processors I go with whatever, although Intel has been disappointing lately. 

 

I've had the same Dell monitor for the last 10 years, and I have a replacement arriving tomorrow as it's finally getting flaky. Once I have a good one in place I might take the old one down and see if it's the capacitors on the power supply. I bought the current replacement model of the one I've had, I hope to get a decade out of this new one.

 

 

 

 

My Current Setup:

AMD Ryzen 2700X 50th Anniversary

MSI B450 Gaming Plus

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

EVGA RTX 3060 Ti XC

ADATA SU800 1TB

WD 5400RPM 2TB

EVGA G3 750W

RAIDMAX Monster II

If I had the money to build a balls to the wall PC, I'd still go Intel. Sure, AMD offers better value (and is who I'd realistically buy from), but Intel still wins slightly in raw gaming performance due to better IPC and clock speeds (even if they are beasts to cool).

That's basically my logic. When you build a machine with a ten year, no component upgrades, cycle in mind, then suddenly raw performance is all that matters, because the increased cost gets amortized over a decade of use instead of just 3-5 years. Well, that plus for it to not be unbearably underperforming in its end-of-life phase it has to start out pretty much TOTL, but in my experience not necessarily HEDT. Right now a reasonable budget for a 10 year machine with full liquid cooling would be around $5000US in my opinion.

There's a long-range thing for LTT to do: A decade replacement cycle gaming machine.

I think it's really interesting that a lot of people seem to have had drives from either Seagate or WD fail in the past and now they stick with the other. I have only used WD drives in my computers, I have some that have been used since around 2012 and I never had a problem with them. CrystalDisk still shows them in good health. It's interesting because clearly neither company sucks at making hard drives, otherwise lots of people would be having problems and would stop buying them, but still people stick with one and would never use the other.

Many people have told me I'm just "snake-bit" with WD stuff. I know their enterprise drives are well-regarded, but it's hard to trust a product where you've had a near 100% early failure rate.
